Kissed by a Hexenbiest
“No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness. — Grimm 6.08 “The Son Also Rises”
Hexenbiest are known to have the ability to harness their seductive powers on those within their range. Mix this with their striking beauty in human form and you are in for a battle of will. Although, if you are a Grimm then luck may just be on your side. Blood from a Grimm will dismantle the powers of a Hexenbiest…but not the attraction.
A Hexenbiest kiss, exciting and desired, is much like this magical tea blend, which will leave you wanting more of its strong nutty and velvety embrace. Protect your desires, remember your path, and kiss a Hexenbiest at your own peril. When in doubt, brew this warm cup and know you will be safe.
This is the perfect tea to enjoy in front of an open fire on a cool night, or any night for that matter. The roasted chestnut flavor combined with the slight sweetness of the candied walnuts will have you anxious for the holidays. Try adding a touch of milk (or Almond milk) and honey for an amazing cup of nutty comfort. Make sure you have plenty on hand as the aroma will have everyone near you envious for a cup.
Ingredients: Black tea, natural chestnut flavor, and candied walnut pieces.
A Guardians of the Galaxy Inspired Black Tea Blend
I'm hooked on a feeling
I'm high on believing
That you're in love with me
Lips as sweet as candy
It's taste is on my mind
Girl you've got me thirsty
For another cup of wine
- Blue Swede’s cover of “Hooked on a Feeling”
In Guardians of the Galaxy, Starlord may have obsessed over his Awesome Mix, nostalgia is a hard beast to control, but he did not have this awesome blend of loose-leaf tea to compliment the experience! Sometimes, even an intergalactic team of misfits need a cup of quiet relaxation for a serious system reboot. Drax the Destroyer and Rocket Raccoon have often been spotted enjoying this Awesome Mix, with black currents and orange peels, though they try to hide it. Awesomeness can win wars, vanquish Thanos and Ronan, and even fuel a dance-off. Get ready to enjoy your new favorite cup of tea.
Black currants were once banned in the US in the early 1900's as it was thought that they spread a fungus that threatened the timber industry. This super fruit is a native of Europe but is also grown in Asia and New Zealand. Black currants are full of health-promoting anthocyanins (which is also what makes them purple), and vitamin C. In fact, they have 4 times more vitamin C than oranges. For an extra boost of immunity, we combined orange peels which have been shown to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol, to make this tea blend the perfect way to supercharge your day.
Ingredients: Black Tea, dried black currant pieces, orange peel, flavoring, blue cornflowers, and silver sugar crystals.
Alchemy & Destiny
“I cannot shield you from the challenges you will face. You will know great loss and danger, but also great joy. You may doubt your instincts in the years to come, but your feet have been walking this path since the moment you were born.”
― Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches
This Pu-ehr Black Tea is transformed by nutty pistachios and the inter-woven delight of sweet papaya. In Alchemy, one must work to create the perfect mix of ingredients otherwise you risk the delicate balance. Each ingredient must be steeped to perfection. However, Destiny does not always have room for alchemy to interfere or deter the plan. If you are a fan of Deborah Harkness’ trilogy: Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, or The Book of Life then you must be careful. Drinking this caffeinated and bewitching brew may just transport you right between the pages of Diana and Matthew’s story. Though that could be a part of your very own destiny.
Pu-ehr tea, pronounced poo-air, is a tea that is aged and naturally fermented, sometimes for 50 years or more in bricks. Pu-ehr tea is the most oxidized of all teas and only gets better with time. Every 8 ounce cup contains about 70 milligrams of caffeine. Pu-ehr tea not only increases energy with all of this caffeine, but it also helps produce lovastatin (used to treat high cholesterol), and provides high levels of antioxidants and vitamin C due to its fermentation.
Ingredients: Black Tea Pu-Ehr, pistachios, flavoring, peony petals, and dried papaya pieces.
A DC Universe Inspired Rooibos Blend
Wonder Woman is much more than a cartoon character. She's fighting for truth and justice and the secret self that exists in all women and girls. There's a moral fiber and a goodness about her that all women have. – Lynda Carter on Wonder Woman
We Are All Wonder Women!
The best tools are formed of the armor of Goddesses, and the Lasso of Truth is no exception. We all long to find the truth in ourselves and in others but doing so is never easy. Princess Diana of Themyscira, Daughter of Hippolyta was given the lasso by her mother, once it was blessed by Aphrodite and Athena, so that anyone bound by the lasso must obey Wonder Woman. First, Diana always tries to obtain what she needs without the lasso. Yet, even Wonder Woman struggles to trust her instincts but when she is looking for answers, her golden lasso is at the ready. When the lasso is in action, it shines like the golden sun. Much like that phenomenon, this shimmering tea blend produces a compelling cup, reminding us that truth matters.
Honeybush is a plant that is native to the cape of South Africa, much like the close cousin – Rooibos. It has a naturally mild sweet taste and aroma, like honey. Honeybush is naturally caffeine free, has a low content of tannins. It was also traditionally made into a tea to treat coughs because of its content of pinitol which is an expectorant. Try this tea iced, it is simply delightful.
Ingredients: Honeybush, apple pieces, candied pineapple and papaya pieces, cinnamon sticks, fig pieces, lychee pieces, cactus petals, dwarf everlast blossoms, and edible pearl dust.
Weasley's Wonder Wine
A Harry Potter Inspired White Tea Blend
This white tea blend with Elderflower is a favorite of the Weasley household, especially before an important Quidditch game!
Bai Mu Dan is a Chinese tea also known as White Peony. White tea is one of the most delicate varieties of tea, as the processing is kept to a minimum. Because of its delicate nature, it is very important to follow the steeping instructions provided. If the water is too hot, or it is steeped too long, it can release some bitterness that is unpleasant. If you do not have a thermometer or temperature controlled kettle, try to use water that is just under a simmer. Also, refrain from adding any additional milk and sugar in order to enjoy the delicate and subtle flavors of this white tea.
Ingredients: Bai Mu Dan White Tea, elderflowers, elderberries, freeze dried blackberries, blackberry leaves, and honey granules.
Milk Oolong - a flavored Oolong tea
This Oolong tea from Taiwan smells like butter and has an incredible creamy flavor.
Jin Xuan Oolong from Taiwan is famous for its naturally thick and creamy body and mild sweetness. This particular variety of Milk Oolong is inspired by the Jin Xuan tea, but is a flavored Oolong.
Oolong tea is a mildly oxidized tea. Many consider it somewhere between a green tea and a black tea. Generally, oolong teas are less oxidized but different varieties have wildly different oxidation levels ranging from 8% to 80%. A lower oxidized oolong will have less caffeine than a highly oxidized variety. Oolong tea leaves are also curled, rolled, or even twisted into spindles or balls.
Ingredients: flavored Oolong Tea
